It's a nice day for a white wedding...

Today the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and Karen and Stuart are getting married! I had the pleasure of creating a cake for their special day:

Stuart has two kids, Charlotte and Max, who complete the bridal party with the bride and groom. Their artwork adorned the wedding invitations. And Karen and Stuart wanted the cake to represent their new family.

I hope their marriage will be as wonderful as their wedding promises to be.

Cheers to the bride and groom!

Horses for courses

Like a large number of 9 year olds, Emma loves horses. I must admit to loving them too at that age. I would draw pictures of them and put them up on my bedroom wall. So it's not surprising that Emma would ask for a cake with a horse on it (in a field of pink and red flowers) and that I would enjoy making it for her!

And here is a close up of the pretty pony...

Happy Birthday Emma!


Dora the Bikie Explorer

Although only 2 years old, little Zoe has specific tastes. Namely Dora the Explorer and motorbikes. Not exactly an easy pair to combine... But I took a shot and came up with this:

If you are unfamiliar with this Spanish speaking superstar of the preschool world, she has a sidekick. "Boots" the monkey is aptly named as he wears bright red boots (and nothing else). I couldn't have Dora riding solo, so Boots had to join her in a sidecar.

Dora is riding over a 7" dark chocolate mudcake layered with dark chocolate ganache.

Happy Birthday Zoe!
